Brett Kavanaugh is facing allegations of sexual misconduct in the 11th hour of his confirmation process. This is reminiscent of when Clarence Thomas faced allegations of sexual misconduct at the end of his confirmation hearing under George H. W. Bush.
Christine Blasey Ford publicly accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her approximately 36 years ago. She doesn’t recall exactly when.
Anita Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment while working for him at the Department of Education.

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations.
This isn’t the first time the Democrats have pulled something like this. In 1991, Clarence Thomas faced similar allegations.
Thomas addressed the Senate Judiciary Committee and categorically denied them.
I believe Thomas gave one of the best speeches ever given by someone being attacked by these Democrats who try to destroy people’s lives just to win.
Thomas’s opening comments:
“I think that this today is a travesty. I think that it is disgusting. I think that this hearing should never occur in America. This is a case in which this sleaze, this dirt, was searched for by staffers of members of this committee, was then leaked to the media, and this committee and this body validated it and displayed it at prime time over our entire nation.”
Thomas continued, “the Supreme Court is not worth it” speaking about what the allegations did to himself and his family: “No job is worth it.”
Thomas called the entire process a “high-tech lynching.”
“From my standpoint as a black American, as far as I’m concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who, in any way, deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S.— U.S. Senate, rather than hung from a tree.”
